And because of my contributed work and reputation I was offered a 2 week job. I was asked how much I wanted. I remember I was making $50/hr. I said I'd like $100/hr. The client was the New York Observer and the person hiring me was Jeff Robbins of Lullabot. He knew my ask was low. He said, how about $110? Wow! The second story is from DrupalCon San Francisco.
